- [Narrator] When JuliaMcGrith returned to New Burn,

North Carolina after Hurricane Florence,

she didn't realize how much damage

had been done to her home.

- My thought was my house had survived.

I could mop up the floors,I could wash down things,

and I could stay here.

- [Narrator] But she couldn't.

The two to three feetof floodwater had ruined

almost everything she owned.

- The refrigerator, thestove, my deep freezer,

it stopped working completely.

Dry wall has to be removed.

Cabinets have to be removed,the bottom cabinets.

I was looking at thingsthat I thought I could keep

and come to find out, even if it dry out,

the mold will still be there.

- [Narrator] She salvaged a few things

and put them in storage.

After just a few days,

the mold actually landedJulia in the hospital

with breathing trouble.

- I just wanted to holler and scream.

- [Narrator] When she heard

about Operation Blessing'sdisaster relief efforts,

and we sent a team out tohelp, things started to change.

- Like a calvary.

They come in ready to workand they did. (laughing)

- [Narrator] We movedcabinets, took out drywall,

and got everything ready forJulia's house to be dried out,

so she can eventually moveback home without worrying

about mold or breathing problems.

- It's like kind of a burden been lifted.

It just gave me relief.

It gave me some relief and happiness,

because things are on theway to getting back on track.

- [Narrator] Julia wantsto make sure others get

the same help she got.

- Continue your donationsbecause it is really needed

to keep Operation Blessing working,

because they don't only do this for us,

they do it for every disaster.

And the people that's in thedisaster, really needs that.

Thank you all and thank God for ya.
